IdeaLab (re)Launch[edit]

Congratulations on the (re)Launch! The new design is fascinating, and I love the icons. Thanks for everyone who worked on this. --Haithams (talk) 19:47, 12 July 2013 (UTC)

Date format[edit]

Could we use ISO 8601 (i. e. "YYYY-MM-DD") for dates, please? "11/12/13" makes my brain stumble :-). --Tim Landscheidt (talk) 20:41, 21 September 2013 (UTC)

Agree the current format is too US-centric and that case makes my brain stumble too :) ISO 8601 feels a bit too far on the robotic end of the spectrum though. What if we used DD Month YYYY instead, as signatures do? (no idea how easy this is to implement, but I think it might be more familiar to the widest set of people if it wasn't too much trouble).

Yeah, please :) M/D/Y is only used by silly people ;-) Steven Zhang (talk) 13:42, 25 September 2013 (UTC)
Just seeing this now. My pager must be on the fritz :) I can implement this, and it shouldn't take too much time. It's in my queue. Jtmorgan (talk) 18:58, 27 September 2013 (UTC)
